About Us

Walking distance from Middletown’s beaches

The Sea Whale Motel is located at 150 Aquidneck Avenue right off of Routes 138A and 214 (the Newport East section/Atlantic Beach District of Middletown). Nearby, there are plenty of amazing gourmet restaurants in Newport and Middletown, as well as locally-owned shops and fantastic scenic views. In fact, the beach is less than 400 yards walking distance from our Motel. Newport’s Historic Mansion District, Downtown Newport and the harbor front are only a 5-minute drive away.

“We speak your language.”

We may not be a five star hotel, but we care about our guests and keep our properties well-maintained, while offering a great value on Aquidneck Island. We’d be thrilled to host you, and hope your stay here is as comfy and pleasant as possible.

Guest Reviews

No- this is not a five star hotel, but it deserves it nonetheless. Though it has no pool, and it has no continental breakfast, and the room is small, I would go back in a heartbeat! You can tell that someone cares. It is clean. As another reviewer said and I agree, it is well maintained. Starting with all the lush flowers with which they decorate the outside- just to make it more pleasant for patrons as we enter or exit our rooms- you know that you will have a pleasant stay, and you do. Thank you, Sea Whale.

Excellent stay at this motel. Cleanest bathroom I have ever encountered in a motel/hotel. Great location. Husband and wife team up to make your stay carefree. No amenities but very comfortable. 24 hour convenience store nearby.Within walking distance to restaurants and beaches, short drive to Newport.

What a great affordable place to stay. A wonderful waterfront view with comfortable chairs outside to relax and watch the water. Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms with WIFI and cable TV and plenty of parking. Agreat location and minutes from Newport. The owner I talked to was so nice and accommodating, she was very helpful.

Have stayed here several times over the years. Great location, adequate rooms. Nothing too fancy, but certainly worlds better than the rest of the options. Walking distance to beach and several amazing restaurants. Rooms have microwave, refrigerator, and access to a green area with water views. Always a pleasure to stay here.

The Sea Whale offers great value within minutes of downtown Newport. A small motel owned by a husband and wife team, it is very clean and reasonably priced. We have stayed there several times over the past 4 years or so, and keep going back! In the warmer weather, the place is overflowing with beautiful flower baskets. Easton Beach is within walking distance.
